10/31/14 - Happy Halloween!

Halloween is a holiday we like to participate in around here. Be sure to wear your costumes to class today.

Don’t forget that there’s a difference between being committed to improving your health and fitness, and being ridiculous. So, take today for what it is. Have fun and enjoy some treats.

Life’s too short to say no to Halloween candy!

I've got something I know you'll be interested in. In fact, I know you're interested in it. It's looking, feeling, and performing better. We talked about it in your "Intro Session." Sure, you might want some things more than other things. That's natural. It's why you're here.Now, let me help you. There's something that you ...

If you take a blanket look at our membership structure, you’ll notice that the costs, time commitments, and procedures for pausing/stopping training aren’t really about business. It’s about coaching.What we’ve cultivated is a structure that acts like a tool for success. Plain and simple, human nature does not and ha ...

Though I can’t take credit for the idea, as a fellow DEUCE Gym athlete turned me onto it sometime ago, I’d like to share with you some theoretical motivation to start the big project you’re putting off. You know, it’s the one that is your passion. It’s what you really want to do. It’s big and scary. I know, beli ...

As a strength and conditioning coach, it’s quite easy geek out on this stuff. One of my favorite fun facts of functional movements is one that might surprise you. Functional movements, which are by and large what we focus on at DEUCE, are safe at super maximal loads. In other words, one can safely attempt at a press, dead ...

Good movement is attractive. Once we begin to view gym activities simply as human movement, it's not too much of a stretch to assume that the natural elements of general movement are equally relevant to fitness movement conversations. One very basic idea of human movement is this aesthetic one that I'm referring to.It's in ...

Poor motor patterns often go unpunished so long that we can get lulled to sleep. "Does it even matter?" Ask the over 80% of runners that are injured at some point each year if running pain free matters. Ask the athlete at the end of her career who is wondering why her body is falling apart if moving sustainably matters. "I ...

In the same way that a football player has to "take care of the ball," you'd be hard pressed to find a movement around here where "taking care" of your midsection isn't at the top of the list of priorities. Think about an X-Ray of an entire human body. The area between the bottom rib and the top of hip is the most vulnerabl ...

We have a ton of control over our existence. Our environments, on the other hand, often don't get a lot of credit for shaping our behavior. Missing the impact of our environment could mean missing a significant driver in the outcomes you face in your life.When you think about your physical surrounding on a minute by minute ...
